HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) - It was standing room only on Sunday afternoon at the first of this year's Baystate Medical Center's heart and vascular health lecture series.
The lecture series at the Baystate Health Education Center in Holyoke has become an annual event during February, American Heart Month.
Al and Doreen Bushey of East Longmeadow are among those who've been coming every year to attend every lecture.
"Everybody probably has something or other is going to have a problem with their heart, either high blood pressure, like I have," said Al Bushey. "You don't require a fibrillator or pacemaker, I have a pacemaker."
How to keep from suffering a stroke is next on the agenda, as the Baystate Medical Center doctors continue their lecture series next Sunday.
